Congratulations are in order for Rachel Lindsay, who awarded her final rose to Miami-based chiropractor Bryan Abasolo on tonight's Bachelorette finale! While the couple basks in the glow of their new engagement, Life & Style already has details about their wedding plans.
An insider reveals that Rachel has decided she wants to host 300-plus guests in her home state of Texas either next fall or winter. And cameras will most likely capture the nuptials for ABC. “Rachel would be down to have her love story continue on TV,” the insider shares. "She’s aware people think Bachelor engagements don’t last, so she wants to say ‘It did work for me!’”
Even if the network doesn't end up paying for the ceremony, the attorney won't pinch pennies. “She’s frugal but wants her wedding to be the biggest day ever,” the source says. “Rachel has had her wedding planned since childhood. She used to play pretend and go shopping for dresses and everything.”
Speaking of dresses, Rachel has settled on her dream designer. “[She] used to watch Project Runway and gush about how she wanted [contestant] Michael Costello to design her dress," the source tells Life & Style. Her perfect gown would be an off-the-shoulder, form-fitting number with a long train. And the bridesmaids will match the color scheme, which will be red with hints of gold, black, or brown.
And while there will no doubt be a lot of Bachelor, Bachelorette, and Bachelor in Paradise alums in attendance, don't expect any of Rachel's exes to show up. “I can’t see her inviting any of the guys she’s sent home,” the insider adds. “That would be too awkward!”
